Following the latest results, Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group’s lone analyst are now forecasting revenues of CN¥4.25b in 2020. This would be a huge 26% improvement in sales compared to the last 12 months. Statutory earnings per share are forecast to drop 11% to CN¥1.56 in the same period. Before this earnings result, the analyst had predicted CN¥4.29b revenue in 2020, although there was no accompanying EPS estimate. So we can see that while the consensus made no real change to its revenue estimates, the analystbegan providing earnings per share estimates, suggesting a heightened focus on the business’ earnings after the latest results.
Looking at the bigger picture now, one of the ways we can make sense of these forecasts is to see how they measure up against both past performance and industry growth estimates. Next year brings more of the same, according to the analyst, with revenue forecast to grow 26%, in line with its 23% annual growth over the past three years. By contrast, our data suggests that other companies (with analyst coverage) in a similar industry are forecast to see their revenues grow 9.7% per year. So although Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group is expected to maintain its revenue growth rate, it’s definitely expected to grow faster than the wider industry.
The Bottom Line
The biggest takeaway for us from these new estimates is the bullish forecast for profits next year. Happily, there were no major changes to revenue forecasts, with the business still expected to grow faster than the wider industry. We previously had no consensus price target, which could suggest the business has reached a point where the analyst feels comfortably deriving a valuation for it.
With that in mind, we wouldn’t be too quick to come to a conclusion on Changsha Broad Homes Industrial Group. Long-term earnings power is much more important than next year’s profits. At least one analyst has provided forecasts out to 2021, which can be seen for free on our platform here.
